The purpose of this article is to highlight the principal changes to the rules and procedures governing national public procurements in Argentina, introduced by Decree 1030/2016. The new Regulation does not introduce substantial changes to its predecessor, although it does include some relevant modifications.



In September 2016, the government of Argentina modified some of the rules and procedures governing national public procurement. What follows is a brief primer on the principal changes.

On 16 September 2016, the National Executive issued Decree No 1030/20126 modifying Decree 892/2012. The latter implemented the regulation of Delegated Decree No 1023/2001 of the General Regime for Public Procurement (GRPP), issued on 13 August 2001, by the federal executive branch by exercising legislative powers delegated to it by the legislature under the terms of Section 76 of the Federal Constitution.

The GRPP and its Regulation are applicable to certain contracts entered into by the central administration – the federal executive branch, its ministries and departments as well as any other central government bodies – and its agencies, including social security institutions (Section 2, GRPP).
